Well, I opted to turn off the music on this ,because if its not Ozzy, why bother, right?
My hope here is that the people who loved you understood you and respected you will keep alive the enthusiasm, and joy you found in your craft. That we remember you by reaching for that joy when we feel down, and strive to always be better  and learn more about our craft as you always did. 
In that way you will always be in our haunts and hearts

"Where to start such a significant post? Have you ever heard the distant noises of kids running through a neighborhood on Halloween while the air is crisp as you sit on the porch living for the view of the Jack-o’-lanterns casting glowing shadows beside you? Or the leaves blowing into the street as the moon lights the neighborhood, the air is a bit colder but a nice hoodie makes it all tie together? Meeting and getting to know Michelle Papaycik in the time that we’ve spent together, it’s like that feeling times one thousand. I’m happy to say it looks like I have found my true person. I’ve been on this planet for nearly 25 years and never before have I experienced such feelings that I have shared with Michelle. I am thankful you have allowed me to join you on this wonderful journey in life. I look forward to creating beautiful memories and monsters with you.
-🖤 Steve 🎃"


I will never forget this first announcement of our relationship. Ever since the declaration, I replayed your words a hundred times in my mind, and I shall continue a hundred times more. Knowing that I could provide you with the happiness you needed, that you are so deserving of... that gave me meaning and strength. You always provided me with something to dream of, to fight for, and to believe in. No matter how the autumnal air chills, no matter the opacity of the veil between us now, I am forever yours.
